This Christian Bale parody shows how Christian Bale prepares for any role. ‘How much weight should he lose or gain? ‘Do you like him better fat or skinny?
FIELD NOTES FROM THE FUNNY OR DIE STAFF
Christian Charles Philip Bale is many things. He ‘s an actor. He ‘s both a British citizen and an American citizen. He is a man with four names. But most of all he is famous for his intense method acting style, by which he completely transforms his body for his roles.
The Academy Award-winning actor has gone from skin and bones (The Machinist), to plump and tubby (American Hustle), to dayum who is that (The Dark Knight trilogy).
And in Vice, the Adam McKay-directed biopic of former Vice President Dick Cheney, Bale added over 40lbs to his usually athletic frame, particularly his diesel neck. That, plus the work of the Vice make-up artist Greg Cannom, completely erased Bale and left only the
grimacing nightmare image of Dick Cheney.
Bit of acting awesomeness comes via the raucous ragamuffins at Royale Comedy.
